Marital status is related to morbidity and mortality, with married people healthier and at lower risk of death than those who are unmarried (especially among men).
However, the relationship between marital status and obesity is not well established.
Role theory suggests through a marital causation model that people in the marital role are more likely to be obese, and through a marital selection model that people in the marital role are less likely to be obese because of stigmatization.
